Trump is right, yet again. The left, including their slaves the media, are overstating the Coronavirus danger for political gain and to depress the stock market and drop the economy.
Since the beginning the Coronavirus has, according to the WHO and CDC, accounted for some 75 thousand illnesses and 2 thousand deaths. However, the regular influenza, the seasonal flu we vaccinate against every year, has from October 1st through the end of February, caused some 26 MILLION illnesses, a quarter of a million hospitalizations and over 14 THOUSAND deaths in the UNITED STATES ALONE.
Nobody is panicking over the seasonal flu. The selloff of stocks is caused by a manufactured panic NOT BASED IN FACT that the leftist media and politicians have contrived to weaken the Trump economy. Nobody is going bonkers over flu prevention and contagion. Coronavirus so far has about a 5% mortality rate, and that is in China where medical care and sanitation is not up to US or European standards. They are still selling raw monkey and other wild meats in Chinese open markets with no refrigeration, despite commie government orders to the contrary.
The Left Coast, with its masses of homeless defecating and urinating and vomiting and dying in the streets – may have cause for concern to some degree. They have set up a perfect breeding ground for disease and epidemic. I would not put it past the leftist governments to do a Stalin and let the epidemic take hold to kill off the excess homeless population for them. It’s what socialists/communists do. Population control through disease and starvation.
I also believe the left and their pimps in the media are manufacturing fear where there should be none, just to ding the Trump economy in an election year. Screw the economy, ruin it for political gain! Sedition and treason. Turn something which so far has been far less dangerous than a regular US flu season into a panic. Coronavirus mortality rate in China, which does not have the healthcare of the USA, is about 5-6%. US normal flu mortality rate is about 5%, depending on how it is counted, once an American is bad enough to be hospitalized. The vast majority of influenza cases in the US do not require hospitalization.
Why would the supposed “truth seekers” in the mainstream media lie like thieves? Because they are thieves, liars, seditionists, dastards, bastards and pluperfect scoundrels. They are reaping political gain and economic gain over fear mongering. In alliance with the DNC they are spreading false reports of a monstrous pandemic equal to the Spanish flu of the early 20th century. Nothing from the CDC or even the UN-controlled WHO have shown so far that this is the case. So the left and their taint-licking media pimps are flat out lying.
Should we keep an eye on the situation? Of course, and the CDC is doing that as I write. There are a lot of smart folks at the CDC and they have seen it all. Do we need to run around screaming Doom? Hell, no. I just wonder why Fox news is letting the leftist media get away with this without challenge. The CDC and WHO information took me a grand total of fifteen minutes on a fast cable internet connection to find. Surely Fox can do better.
So, yet again, Trump is right and the left is caught lying, although nobody at Fox will point at the emperor of the left and say he has no clothes.
Why? Is Fox going lefty since being bought by Disney?
I remember when the whole thing about W Bush’s military service was an outrage with “documents” to prove it. I took one look at them on the internet and pronounced them to be fakes on the (back then) debate boards I prowled. I know what classified documents and military orders look like and these were all wrong. They looked like someone who had read some spy stories had cobbled them together. Dan Rather doubled down on them and it cost him his career.
This panic over Coronavirus is likewise a manufactured hoax. So why aren’t more people than me yelling about it? Why aren’t careers in jeopardy over it?
How does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?
